Rebuilt after an earthquake, de Young Museum can resist seismic shaking with its striking twisted tower. This modern complex in Golden Gate Park holds collections of American and contemporary international art. Archives of American art dating back to the 17th century, including textiles and costumes, make the museum exceptional. Textiles come from as far away as Turkey, and the costumes showcase early fashions from designers such as Christian Dior. Our San Francisco trip planner makes visiting de Young Museum and other San Francisco attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • There is no need to question the global status of this establishment in the art world. It's on par with all of the great world class art museums, the collection is magnificent. What makes it more special is the special exhibitions. Countless shows showcasing not only well known artists but also some lesser known. Those lesser known might just be the best part. In my opinion, any time you have the opportunity to learn something new it's a great day!
  • What a lovely place. Two special shows going now now. Just re-opened. Everybody was friendly & very helpful. A very pleasant afternoon. It is worth a trip. Always something of interest to explore, the Cafe food offering were very good. Well done an presented with care...
